|Dada Life at Avalon Hollywood|
October 16, 2012
Dada Life drew quite the crowd last night when they threw their free The Rules of Dada album release party at the iconic club Avalon in Hollywood. Tickets to this show sold out in less than 10 minutes and were almost as coveted as Ultra Music Festival pre-sales. Not only were we lucky enough to talk to Olle Cornéer and Stefan Engblom, the Swedish duo-- who met in Orange County while standing in a line at Disneyland--prior to the show, but we were also able to bear witness to their energetic two-hour set in typical Dada Land fashion with the rest of their raging fans.
"A lot of dance music producers do a lot of different kinds of songs incorporating slower songs, fast songs and maybe more vocals or instrumentals," says Cornéer when asked what inspired this album three years in the making. "We wanted to do the opposite - an album that is just a party with 11 bangers from start to finish." Known for their entertaining "live" sets, Dada Life throws large inflatable bananas and champagne bottles which have become staples at all of their shows as they splice in their bangers with their own original remixes of EDM hits. "The energy is so good in America and Canada right now," adds Engblom the other half of the duo. "People are really embracing dance music and EDM and we can really feel it on our current Dada Land tour."More »
